No. Not 271 or ? Thread locker. This thread sealer maybe 569 if memory serves me .....you mean red (medium?) loctite? I have heard this before too... but was expressed to use lighter than normal on smaller ones; esp. brass fittings that might round off when trying to remove
I'm not sure these are the correct products IF you are replacing your Haldex Midland brake manifold control with the latest version. The newer products are NOT a metal manifold. They are a plastic composite. These two sealers appear to be metal to metal.So I spoke to Henkel tech support who is the parent of permatex/loctite.
The red is actually what they call burnt orange. It is sold to preauthorized centers in bulk and they apply it. They do not sell the same product in the retail or automotive/hardware markets.
Some additional information provided:
"So we have many anaerobic thread sealants. They are chemically very different than the pre-applied product. First of all, they do not dry on the thread, so you apply and assemble right away. Secondly, the pre-applied thread sealant is a non-curing product, so it can actually be adjusted. Our liquid/paste anaerobic products cure once, and if you move them, you've lost the seal "
Their preferred solution for pipe thread sealant is 567. So the OE applied stuff can stand to be adjusted after the fact but not the stuff we have access to. I suspect 565 or 567 or pipe dough will be fine as additional preventative.
